MILWAUKEE — One person has died and another was injured in a crash on Milwaukee’s north side Sunday night, July 30th.

It happened near 76th and Tower just before 8:00 p.m. Police say the vehicle left the roadway from the viaduct that goes over railroad tracks.

According to police, a 37-year-old man was driving his 2002 Toyota Sienna minivan southbound when he lost control and the van crashed.  The driver was ejected from the vehicle and his passenger, a 24-year-old man, had to be extricated from the vehicle.

The driver suffered minor injuries and was arrested for OWI.

No other vehicles involved.

MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
